  • RAND PAUL: There's A Secret Hillary Clinton Scandal That Will Derail Her Campaign 'Soon' (oh-noes!!)

    Business Insider ^ | Apr 18, 2015, 12.36 | Colin Cambell
    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) thinks he knows something that you don't about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Bloomberg News' Dave Weigel reported Friday that Paul gave a speech to a pro-life group the day before in which Paul predicted the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation will soon be hit by a major scandal. "There's going to be stuff coming out about the Clinton foundation and their donations from different companies that get special approval by the secretary of state. It's coming out in the next couple weeks," Paul said. As Weigel noted, Paul has made similar...
  • Hillary’s hypocrisy on the death tax: I support this tax. I just don’t feel like paying it.

    Earlier this week we took a look at the GOP efforts to repeal the death tax, including some of the political pitfalls involved as well as reasons why it’s still a hill worth fighting on. In a rare moment of taking a position on a policy issue, Hillary Clinton has chimed in on the so called estate tax several times over the years. She has referred to it as a “wealth tax”, which works out quite well for her this year if she’s trying to angle her way into a more Elizabeth Warren style position on the subject. So...

    Is another shoe about to drop on the Clinton Foundation, and on Hillary Clinton’s problematic rollout? Newsweek’s Rory Ross reported this morning that the largest individual donor to the Clinton family business has conducted trade with Iran, perhaps in breach of US sanctions. Ukrainian energy mogul Victor Pinchuk has connections to the Clintons that go back almost a decade, and financial connections to the regime in Tehran that go much farther: The fourth richest man in Ukraine, Pinchuk owns Interpipe Group, a Cyprus-incorporated manufacturer of seamless pipes used in oil and gas sectors.Newsweek has seen declarations and documents from...

    It was only a matter of time before the media began their drool parade over Hillary Clinton. Since the announcement of her presidential run on Sunday, they have been chasing after her like paparazzi, patiently waiting for any word she might utter, and alas, begin the tedious task of trying to paint her into a likeable person. No more of the “old” Hillary - an opportunistic, scandal ridden, “technically challenged,” pantsuit-wearing former first lady, Senator, Secretary of State….and one of those “evil one-percenters” she claims to detest. The media’s mission, which they have chosen to accept, is to humanize her...

In the now-viral clip of reporters chasing after Clinton’s “Scooby” van, the Clinton camp drove to the back entrance, surprising both reporters and many of her supporters waiting to get a glimpse of the candidate. “I think what you don’t see in that clip, which is one of the most surprising things is there were actually a ton of people waiting for her at the front of that college,” said Financial Times reporter Megan Murphy. “There were elderly...

The potential presidential hopeful on Thursday shared a fan's tweet that read "If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?" Trump deleted the tweet, but not before actor Lenny Jacobson got a screenshot of it: The deleted tweet was also archived on a Boston Glove live blog that tracked tweets from presidential hopefuls during a New Hampshire Republican Party leadership summit. The tweet Trump quoted apparently originated with Sawyer Burmeister, a competitive equestrian who...

    A middle school teacher is recovering in hospital in New York after being viciously assaulted by one of her student's mothers and the woman's 14-year-old niece. The incident occurred Wednesday afternoon at Alverta B. Gray Schultz Middle School in Hempstead. Police say the parent, Annika McKenzie, 34, walked into the building without being cleared by security and waited in the hallway for her daughter's math teacher, Catherine Engelhardt. McKenzie believed Engelhardt had 'put her hands' on her 12-year-old daughter earlier in the day, according to ABC 7.

The plot, which contains the graves of Lizzie Borden, her slain father A.J., and stepmother, Abigail, as well as Lizzie’s sister, Emma, was marked with graffiti police belief to have been “tagged” by skateboarders. The crime took place on Sunday, the same day “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles” miniseries premiered on Lifetime. “It just irks me … not just when it’s Lizzie Borden, but anyone,” said Oak Grover Cemetery Director Tony Eaton.

While accurate figures were hard to come by, testing opponents, parents groups, and school officials from Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, to Buffalo all agreed the number is likely to far exceed the 60,000 students who refused to take the test last year.

And I believe the FBI covered it up. LOOK BACK: REPORTING THE CRASH OF TWA FLIGHT 800 ON JULY 17, 1996 There are many reasons to disbelieve the official explanation of what happened to TWA 800 almost 19 years ago, on July 17, 1996, off the South Shore of Long Island.

Defendant photographed the building’s residents surreptitiously, hiding himself in the shadows of his darkened apartment. Defendant asserts that he did so for reasons of artistic expression; he obscured his subjects’ faces, seeking to comment on the “anonymity” of urban life, where individuals only reveal what can be seen through their windows. After approximately one year of photography, defendant assembled a series of photographs called “The Neighbors,” which he exhibited in galleries in Los Angeles and New York.

    Yet more tarnish has befallen the Silver name. Indicted former Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver’s son-in-law was arrested and charged Monday with running a $7 million Ponzi scam. Marcello Trebitsch, 37, of Brooklyn, who is married to Silver’s daughter, Michelle Trebitsch, was busted on federal wire fraud and securities charges. Trebitsch’s arrest comes less than three months after Silver was indicted on federal corruption charges stemming from his alleged solicitation of $4 million in bribes and kickbacks. Like Silver, Trebitsch is being prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. “Investing in securities entails certain risks, but should not include the risk of...

    Hillary’s made it official: She’s now a candidate for president in the 2016 election. Question is, can she win? The former first lady and secretary of state certainly carries lots of baggage as she enters the race, including but not limited to all those missing e-mails. But she isn’t expecting any of those issues to prove fatal. Her big fear — according to the Wall Street Democrats I speak to — is being stuck with (and blamed for) her old boss’ economy. That’s because the economy has never fully recovered from the financial collapse that President Obama faced when he...

One of his greatest “accomplishments” in turning around the dismal prospects of the state is the START-UP NY program which was ostensibly designed to attract businesses to the state, promote the creation of new businesses and boost employment....

    --SNIP-- It is a line of attack that echoes Republicans’ earlier questioning of Mr. Obama’s American citizenship. Those attacks were blatantly racist in their message — reminding people that Mr. Obama was black, suggesting he was African, and planting the equally false idea that he was secretly Muslim. The current offensive is slightly more subtle, but it is impossible to dismiss the notion that race plays a role in it. Perhaps the most outrageous example of the attack on the president’s legitimacy was a letter signed by 47 Republican senators to the leadership of Iran saying Mr. Obama had no...

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's team has told the Federal Election Commission that she continued her campaign even after endorsing Democratic presidential rival Barack Obama on June 7, a claim that lets her transfer millions of dollars from her presidential bid to her Senate campaign. The former first lady made the $6.4 million transfer from her White House campaign, which remains more than $7 million in debt, to Friends of Hillary on Aug. 28. That date would fall outside the legal deadline for making such a move if her campaign were to have ended June 7. Her campaign treasurer told federal...

The founder of the Bombay Palace restaurant chain, Chatwal is one of a growing number of fundraisers in the 2008 presidential campaign whose backgrounds have prompted questions about how much screening the candidates devote to their "bundlers" while they press to raise record amounts, the daily said. Chatwal's case reached from...
  • Cabbie Ordered to Pay Lesbian Couple $10K for Telling Them to Stop Kissing

    CHELSEA — A taxi driver must pay a lesbian couple $10,000 for telling them to either stop smooching in the backseat of his cab or kiss their ride goodbye, a city administrative judge ruled last month. Yellow cab hack Mohammed Dahbi was accused of discriminating against the couple over their sexual orientation by ordering them to "keep that [behavior] for the bedroom or get out of the cab." Dahbi also gave the passengers, Christy Spitzer and Kassie Thornton, some lip, calling them "b-----s," "c---s" and "whores" when they got out of the cab without paying, according to Judge John Spooner's...

    Judith Miller, the former New York Times reporter, has blown a big hole in the case against Lewis “Scooter” Libby, convicted of lying to avoid blame for outing a CIA agent. Miller was a key witness in Libby’s trial, but in her new book she has repudiated her testimony. Libby was “railroaded in his conviction” by Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald, she said in an interview on Fox News yesterday. In her book, The Story: A Reporter’s Journey, she writes that Fitzgerald cajoled her into testifying in 2007 that Libby had told her Valerie Plame, the wife of a critic...

    (Gay thrown off building by devout Muslims) These son of a bitches need to live under the sharia. I am so sick of this vicious and radical agenda against non-Muslims. This is how the left destroys America: dismantle and trash the pillars of Americanism, paving the way for the totalitarianism that the left so dearly loves. In the wake of the Indiana donnybrook over religious liberty, which somehow was transformed overnight into a question of gay rights, it couldn’t be long before the New York Times weighed in against Christians. Yet who could have expected the draconian measures the Times...

    As a resident of the upstate portion of New York (not the Big Apple) I have written frequently about the depressing, negative effects which liberal tax and spend policies combined with strangling regulatory burdens have had on the state, as well as the economic death spiral which has followed. Many of the complaints I hear from residents of the more rural, upstate region center on the unbalanced power held by New York City and the complete disconnect between the government and the more conservative, rural communities to the north and west. But even as a person studying and experiencing...

    Chelsea Clinton has given an interview about life in the public eye, being a new mother and her hope that the US one day elects a female president. While she stops short of naming a potential runner there can be little doubt – given the timing of her comments – about who she means. It is no secret that her mother, Hillary, is due to announce her run for the White House on Sunday. Ms Clinton told Elle magazine: “One of our core values in this country is that we are the land of equal opportunity, but when equal hasn't...

    Living with roommates is practically a rite of passage in New York City. It often begins with far too many people sharing too little space and ends with a move into an apartment of one’s own, or with that special someone. But with rents reaching new highs, single 20-somethings are not the only ones looking for someone with whom to share the rent. Couples are living with roommates even after they’ve tied the knot.

    All children deserve to be safe at school. Yet it turns out that New York City does not provide kids who attend private schools with the same level of protection as those at public schools. That’s not only unfair, it’s unsafe. And it ought to change. As matters stand, only public schools in the city are eligible for NYPD school-safety agents. Private schools must provide security officers on their own dime. And while child-safety is an issue no decent school would ignore, the fact is many private schools struggle to cover the costs of adequate security — and sometimes the...

The video is indicative of activity that requires more investigation.”Detective Cyrus...

    Utah, Texas, and North Dakota, where taxes are low, are the most economically vibrant states in the country, according to a new report. The high-tax states of New York and Michigan rank at the bottom. Additionally, the report found, millions of people left highly-taxed states for low-tax states between 2003 and 2013. The 8th edition of Rich States Poor States, an annual report released by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) on Wednesday, found that 1.5 million people left New York between 2003 and 2013, the largest exodus of any state. California came in second by that indicator, with 1.4...

    President Obama on Wednesday embarks on a trip to Jamaica and to Panama where the formal agenda is summitry with Caribbean and Latin American leaders. But the powerful subtext will be the body language between him and President Raúl Castro of Cuba. Four months after Mr. Obama ordered the restoration of full diplomatic relations with Cuba, he and Mr. Castro are likely to share a stage, a conference table, a “family photo” with attendees and potentially even a one-on-one meeting.
